Low Rolling Resistance Tire Market is expected to witness ~15% CAGR during the forecast period, 2020–2025 and the market size is expected to reach USD 18 Billion by 2025.
The global market for low rolling resistance tire is growing rapidly due to environmental awareness, government regulations regarding tire labeling, increasing demand for fuel-efficient tires, and growth in the aftermarket. However, the growth of the market may be hindered by the high prices of low rolling resistance tires.
The global low rolling resistance tires market is segmented based on application, vehicle type, sales channel and region. On the basis of application, the global market has been segmented into on-road and off-road. On the basis of vehicle type, the global market has been segmented into two-wheeler, passenger car, light commercial vehicle, heavy commercial vehicle, and others. On the basis of sales channel, the global market has been segmented into OEM and aftermarket.
Geographically, the global market of low rolling resistance tire has been segmented into four major regions, which are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and the Rest of the world. The low rolling resistance tire market in Asia-Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the global market during the forecast period. The high growth of the automobile manufacturing industry in countries such as China, India, and Indonesia. China is the leading country in terms of sales of electric vehicles. The Chinese government has introduced the “Automobile Mid and Long-Term Development Plan” combined with the presence of BAIC, BYD, and JAC, is expected to play an important role in the sale of electric vehicles and hybrid vehicles.
The Prominent Players in the global low rolling resistance tire market are The Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. (Japan), Apollo Tyres Ltd. (India), Cheng Shin Rubber Industry Co. (China), Kumho Tire (South Korea), Zhongce Rubber Group Co., Ltd (ZC-Rubber) (Germany), Nokian Tyres plc (Finland), MRF Tyres (India), Bridgestone Corporation (Japan), The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company (US), Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. (Japan), Pirelli & C. S.p.A. (Italy), Hankook Tire (South Korea), Michelin (France), Continental AG (Germany), Firestone Tire and Rubber Company (US), Cooper Tire & Rubber Company (US), and Toyo Tire & Rubber Company (Japan).
The low rolling resistance tire manufacturing companies are working to develop low rolling resistance tires specifically for electric vehicles as Hankook Tire developed Enfren Eco tire, which combines a special silica compound and structural design to reduce energy loss and enhance fuel efficiency for electric vehicles.
Additionally, increasing vehicle sales, aftermarket growth, lower production costs, and favorable government schemes are encouraging global players to invest heavily in this region, which is further expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period.
Low rolling resistance tires are made with a hard rubber compound and stiff sidewalls to reduce friction and flex. Some tire companies are working on developing the advanced tire material combinations with new tire compounds, such as those based on silica and alternative oils to achieve good rolling-resistance properties while maintaining a pleasant ride and better grip.
Such tires are designed to have low tire rolling resistance with the help of improved tire thread design without affecting skid and tread abrasion resistance, traction and other aspects of tire performance that are vital to the operating smoothness, as well as they are designed to reduce the noise generated by the tire and ultimately improve the vehicle fuel efficiency.
In 2010, Japan began implementing a voluntary tire labeling system for passenger cars. Similarly, the South Korean government initiated a voluntary tire-labeling program for passenger cars in November 2011, which was then made compulsory in November 2012. Furthermore, in November 2016, South Korea started implementing mandatory tire labeling regulations such government regulations regarding tire labelling is expected to further boost the growth of the low rolling resistance tire market.
Low rolling resistance tire manufacturers, considering the potential of the commercial vehicles, have started focusing on them by investing in the development of tread compounds that can reduce tire rolling resistance while maintaining the treadwear and durability of truck tires. For instance, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is developing low rolling resistance tires that provide maximum fuel saving with low heat generation and low rolling resistance for long-haul applications. In 2018, it planned to launch its most fuel-efficient tire range. According to the data provided by the company, these new tires are manufactured using a silica compound that can help save a 100-vehicle fleet more than USD 338,000 in fuel costs, annually, and help truck manufacturers meet future emission targets. Thus, the rise in demand for low rolling resistance tires, especially within fleets, is an opportunity for low rolling resistance tires during the forecast period.
